the death penalty in california. kron4's dan kerman is here in dan how are california leading? >> at this point the poll finds a majority of californians are in favor of repealing the death penalty and replacing it with life in prison without the possibility of parole. and while this is a reverse from poll numbers back in september the number of those expected to vote yes is a big enough for proportion 34 to pass. let's take a look at the numbers. the latest field poll of serving people at the end of october indicates 45 percent will vote yes, 30 percent felt no and 70 percent remained undecided. that is a significant change from early september when yes voters trilled spells opposed by 45 to the amount of 42%. >> usually when they learn more which is unique id is moving the other way. they are learning more about the initiative. and they could at most likely vote yes. >> 45 could not be enough. however, it will perhaps come down to the 70% of undecided. >> you talk about this measure is growing to have any indication about why the polls indicate that? >> it seems to be becaus
